ALLIANCE OF HOPE FOR SUICIDE SURVIVORS wrote -
We are raising $50,000 to provide direct services to survivors of suicide loss. We hope you will support our work, by joining our Champions for Hope team or making a donation.
Chances are, you or someone you know has lost a loved one to suicide. Every 40 seconds someone ends their life, leaving behind friends, family, and colleagues who may be profoundly debilitated by a traumatic, complicated grief that is not well-understood by the general public.
In the US alone, there are more than 4.7 million suicide loss survivors. Many who have suffered such loss say they never knew such pain existed. In fact, those closest to the loss—parents, spouses, siblings, and dear friends—are nearly 10 times more likely to become suicidal themselves in the initial aftermath.
You can help them receive access to skilled support and life-saving resources by contributing to the Alliance of Hope. Through online support, community forums, and individualized consultations, we help people survive the overwhelming despair and trauma of a loved ones’ suicide, so they can heal, and resume productive lives.
Since 2008, thousands of survivors have benefited from our free services. Many call our community "my lifeline." We have operated this nonprofit as a labor of love for 7 years, with the support of many highly trained, dedicated volunteers, because we see the lives we are saving, and the hope we are spreading from one survivor to another.
Today we are proud to say that the Alliance of Hope is the leading online source of support in the world for suicide loss survivors. Through the strength of community, we are having real impact every day in the lives of thousands of people bereaved by suicide—many of whom have no other resources available to them.
Be a Champion for Hope, and help us continue to provide hope and healing after suicide.
